I watched “Saturday Night LIve” over the weekend. I mean, I actually watched the entire show, not only the sketches mocking Sarah Palin. (I don’t recall any this Saturday, unlike her appearance last weekend.) No, it wasn’t very funny. Except for flashes of brilliance here (”Iran So Far”) and there (”Lazy Sunday”), it hasn’t been good since I was in high school. But the above campaign ad wasn’t bad. Yeah, it was pretty obvious where the joke was going as soon as the spot pointed to Butts, N.Y. Still I got a good laugh.
